| More Risky Eating »
Today Malaysia celebrates its 51st birthday (Happy Birthday Independence Day Malaysia!).
And Malaysians will do as they do every day - observe the nation's unofficial motto: Makan, makan, makan!! (Eat, Eat, EatI!).
Malaysia, we love you.

Is this the won ton noodle stall at PJ Old Town?

Hi Jennifer - no, it's the wonton mee (and dry chicken curry mee, on Sat/Sun) stall at Imbi Market. :-)

Been reading your blog for a while. I love those beautiful shots. I move around a lot in SEA but did not make the effort to go off the beaten track. Eating is our favorite past-time for as we eat we talk. Mostly politics!

Hi Robyn, I'm a regular reader and have always enjoyed reading your stories as well as viewing the photos. Seen your presentation at the Pecha Kucha Night Vol. 04.
P/S: Malaysia was formed in 1963, and will turn 45 on 16 September. Its official name was still the Federation of Malaya when it gained its independence from Britain on 31 August 1957.

Hi Chin - thanks for reading!
Skyjuice - thanks for coming to Pecha Kucha. I was pretty sure everyone there came to see the other presenters. :-)
I know about the 'real' birthday of Malaysia, but the 'official' narrative is that 'Malaysia's' 50th was last year (why is that, do you suppose)? We don't really talk politics here so I didn't wanna rock the boat by bringing that up....

I have to say I've been your regular reader for almost 4 years now(?) and I enjoy every feature you have here. Next year I'm going to KL - at last! Any suggestions on where I should go and where I should stay? I'm on a low budget though but going with friends so it will be an adventure we look forward to.

Sorry Robyn! I spelled your name wrong I was thinking of my other friend Robin :-)
